An intrepid Danish couple who set out from Copenhagen in an electric car 113 days ago finally arrived in Shanghai yesterday afternoon, their first major destination in a round-the-world tour.

Their vehicle, a modified green Nissan, trundled slowly into the Denmark Pavilion at the World Expo site for a two-day exhibition, and immediately attracted the attention of visitors.

Having parked their car, Hjalte Tin, 56, and his wife Nina Rasmussen, 67, opened the front hood to show Expo visitors that the Nissan has an electric motor and doesn't consume a drop of gasoline.
